Pritchard joined HTV Wales in 1971 as a newsreader and presenter, working on a variety of programmes in both the Welsh and English languages. She later became a in-vision continuity announcer and concentrated on presenting a number of social affairs programmes for the station.
Pritchard left HTV in December 1992 when in-vision continuity was abandoned. In May 2000, she became the Chief Executive of George Thomas Hospice Care in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan and five years later, won the Western Mail award for Welsh Woman of the Year in the Community.
